Library Journal Review

After discovering his girlfriend is pregnant, Ruben Rath turns to a life of crime in order to provide for his family. Before long, he's in over his head and on the run from some truly terrifying criminals. What his enemies don't know is that Ruben is the latest in a century-long line of vicious, terrifying men, none more brutal than his own father, Ira, one of the most dangerous and unrelenting assassins ever to appear in fiction. Will Ira save his son or hunt him down in order to collect a hefty bounty? Can Ruben find a way to bring a legacy of violence to an end in order to insure his unborn child a better future? Aaron (Thor, Vol. 1: God of Thunder Reborn) is well known for writing monumental superhero adventures, but here, he and collaborator Garney (Daredevil; Wolverine) deliver an unsparingly gritty and captivating Southern noir. Collects single issue 1-5. VERDICT Readers unwilling to engage with disagreeable or unlikable characters need not apply, but crime fiction fans with strong constitutions will welcome this volume with enthusiasm. © Copyright 2019.
